Earnestine & Hazel's is a a popular watering hole for people looking for great food with a quirky juke joint atmosphere. Settle in downstairs with a cold beer and the juicy "Soul Burger" slathered in mustard and onions. Many folks come just to listen to the jukebox, which is filled with classic Memphis soul and funk music. Make sure to tour the upstairs area. This space used to be a working brothel and may even have a couple of ghosts haunting the various rooms. Poke around and you'll even find a bar in the back corner where Nate, the bartender, is waiting to take care of you.  Earnestine & Hazel's is a quintessential dive bar located in Downtown Memphis. They're open for lunch, but most people don't make their way to this Memphis institution until late at night. Smoking is allowed during all operating hours, so Earnestine & Hazel's is a 21+ joint.
